Congratulations to Dr Roger Hillman who was elected as a Fellow at the 2011 Annual General Meeting of the Academy of the Humanities.
Dr Hillman is a Reader and Associate Professor in the College of Arts and Social Sciences. He began his academic career as a Germanist, publishing a study of the German novel and its depiction of society in the nineteenth century, but is now best known for his work in film studies in a series of influential analyses ranging across national and discipline boundaries to explore not merely the visual but the auditory in cinema. He has close connections to three Australian universities, Sydney, Adelaide and the ANU as well as a number of overseas institutions, especially Berkeley, and the universities of Graz and Bologna, where he has researched and taught. Hillman has been the recipient of an Alexander von Humboldt fellowship, and a CRASSH (Cambridge University’s Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities) fellowship, with a project focusing on representations of Gallipoli in film and literature. Throughout 2009 he was a member of the Humanities and Creative Arts panel of the ARC.
His publication include Zeitroman: The Novel and Society in Germany 1830-1900 (1983), Essays in German Literature, Music and Theatre (1991, co-edited with R. Alter and A. Stephens) and Unsettling Scores: German Film, Music and Ideology (2005).
